No military cuts

WA Post:  The spending budget Trump is set to release Thursday will offer the clearest snapshot of his vision for the size and role of government. Aides say that the president sees a new Washington emerging from the budget process, one that prioritizes the military and homeland security while slashing many other areas, including housing, foreign assistance, environmental programs, public broadcasting and research. Simply put, government would be smaller and less involved in regulating life in America, with private companies and states playing a much bigger role.
A period of chaos in the Swamp will ensue. The senators have no solution, they are stumped. Certainly a policy of 'my socialism is better than your'  will fail. We are going one more round a continuing resolution and sequester. The alternative is take the senators on a copter ride.
